Introduction In the science of studying media and communication there are many different ways of approaching the subject in which you are going to analyse That is to analyse advertisements texts TV-series films etc and other media My task for this assignment is to give an analysis of a film of my choice A film is a quite complex medium to analyse thus it is important to have analysis tools or some criteria to follow In my analysis I am asked to consider the use and resolution of binary opposition and through analysis of narrative structure In my assignment I am going to consider how the couple is represented and how the narrative structure and binary oppositions have influence on the plot of the story The film I have chosen is the old science fiction film noir Blade Runner During this analysis I will use the abbreviation BR when referring to Blade Runner I have chosen the original version and not the Directors cut- version that were released in 1992 Furthermore this is a complex movie that I thought would be interesting to use for an analysis It is a dark futuristic science fiction movie which is said to be a hybrid of science fiction film noir detective thriller bounty-hunter western and love story Gianetti L 1999 p 313 Thus it is a quite complex film and there are lots of things to consider Moreover the complexity is due to the fact that there are more than one possible plot in the movie In my opinion the most important plot is that androids or replicants vs humans Deckards dramatic need in BR is to haunt and kill four nexus 6 replicants that is considered a great danger to humans Another plot is the romance between Deckard human and Rachel android or replicant This is more of a sub-plot Further there is the question if Deckard himself is a replicant Film analysts and Blade Runner
